As the shaky US-North Korea summit is set to begin, the parties must search for common interestND

Trump has hinted that he might offer a formal treaty between North and South on ending the war. In terms of negotiating leverage, both parties have strengths and weaknesses, but the strategic importance of Seoul means that any attack on the South Korean capital would be devastating for the US.
